Natural Appetite Suppressors Are Less Risky Than Pills, Nutrition Experts Says

March 8, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
There are “countless” products on the market these days catering to the desire of overweight or obese people to suppress their appetites as a technique for losing pounds. Unfortunately, says nutrition scientist Timothy Garvey, M.D., there is almost no reliable scientific data on the safety or efficacy of these products. “People buying these products are likely to be wasting money,” he warns. There are better, natural ways to decrease appetite, beginning with a protein-rich breakfast. Egg whites or low-fat yogurt will keep you feeling fuller longer because it takes the body more time to digest and absorb them. Later in the day, unsaturated fats will do the trick. The oleic acid in peanut butter or nuts helps quell hunger.
